Are you ready? Experience has shown that good soaking rains and yesterday’s snow will lead to a very colorful spring bloom. Depending on the amount of rain and the depth of water soaking in we could see flowers and grasses that have been dormant for the past several years. The forecast for the next week or two gives us hope of more rain and now is the time. My good friend, Jim the botanists , has told me this truth over the last several years. He is a park planner for the NPS, plus was born and raised here.
So the point of this post is to get you fired up for the spring bloom of 2009. Should start in mid-March and last through May.
You can do you part by going out on the trail on every cloudy day and do the River Mountains “raindance”.
